Looks a lot lite E61/62/63/71/72/73 and almost every other blackberry, only difference is its a slider... not so impressive. prob is the nokia phones do a lot of things well besides email. not to mention thousands of apps that work on symbian and Carl Zeiss camera (same brand I used in a research lab a few years ago) coupled to a laser!
My n97 with updated firmware is slimmer and has both touch and qwerty. no thx.
Oh and it plays well with my Mac!!
Paolo_android, 03 Aug 2010with these outdated features and crappy screen resolution phone, blackberry pretend to battle ... moreNow that you have your glasses on ... where's your brain? Too much drinking? Blackberry's doing just fine. I think Motorola's the one that needs to worry and do battle. Is that what you have the Moto Droid? Why else tag "_android" to you're name, but mention iphone4 and nokia n8? These phones don't use android, so you must have the moto droid or htc? It would be pretty lame if you didn't have either, what android phone do you have?
Who said this is a weird keyboard? hahahahaha. Thanks, I needed I good laugh.
This is a smart move from bb because bb users like the physical keyboard, but now get the best of both worlds. Keeping their popular physical keyboard layout and decent size touch screen, this phone is going to do well.
it's funny how blackberry and iphone draw so much attention good and bad ... Even if people are posting dumb comments to put it down - it's because both companies are doing so well, while other companies like motorola and SE are fighting to stay alive. If HTC were to be #1, you'd see a bunch of dump comments whenever HTC releases a new product. I hate apple and never had a bb, but both are good products depending what you want. I actually thank the 1st iphone for changing the mobile industry - we could still be waiting for the first multi touch device if it wasn't for iphone.
Isn't it like Samsung Corby when the slider is closed?
when they want to made it a slider, why it's not a side slider with horizontal keyboard?why they insist on that weired keyboard even when the form make it possible to use a more handy keyboard?
all u people are mad...this is definately an iphone killer particularly since the iphone 4 sucks real bad..(i am also an apple fan)..
its a brilliant phone from blackberry! all the others criticising there are jealous..
keep it up bb!
[deleted post]off course its soooo cool, that the big companies are switching to the god damn iphone ... the only thing cool in these phone is de "PIN" , all the other things is crappy...
BlackBerry just doesn't get it. This is no 'iPhone killer'. This is a monumental joke.
All the people making stupid comments about blackberry is similar to all the people making stupid comments about the iphone. Blackberry and iPhone are the biggest players and in demand in US and Canada. For the immature people just bashing who don't even know much about phones and how people use them, who cares what you think. Not everyone's needs are the same as yours, on the flip side, people should buy what the need/want and not be followers or buy a blackberry to feel more important, successful, or bussinesslike. i.e. buying a blackberry when they really don't need one and use the phone more for taking photos or videos - better off buying something else for that.
